EDIT: THE RED SOX HAVE APPARENTLY DECIDED TO PUT JOEL HANRAHAN ON THE 60 DAY DL.
Can you literally already close the book on the Joel Hanrahan trade? Mark Melancon has already been the superior pitcher. Stolmy Pimentel is smoking AA and now it’s being reported that the Red Sox are going to DFA Brock Holt to bring up a reliever to replace the injured Hanrahan.
Looks like Brock Holt may be the guy the #RedSox have designated for assignment for De La Torre. Working on confirming.

Theoretically the Pirates could actually claim Brock Holt and the trade would look like this.
Would I claim Brock Holt? If it means John McDonald goes away then absolutely.
